Hi from the CC CLub

I can see this shot in a fairy tale book, full of PeterPans and Pirates.

I think this shot needed a squarer crop to get rid of some of the left hand side. right now it is gorgeous framing, but I think that as there are so many branches in the foreground that it is distracting to the rest fo the shot, which you have titled Serious Moon. SO you need to have that as a good solid focal point. If you crop to the edge of that cream yellow thing that is on the left hand side floor, you will see a bigger difference in the shot.

I really like this shot and would have thought it would score higher.

Pm me if you have any questions!

A unique way to use the moon in a night shot. This works really well!!

The branches add a great natural frame. The illuminated clouds make it even better.
